The Catholic Church has always been a major player in European and even world history. Whether it has enjoyed a religious dominance or existed as a minority religion, Catholicism has never been diverted from political life. This book records the Church struggling to adapt to the new political landscape ushered in by the French Revolution, and shows how the formation of nation states and identities was both helped and hindered by the Catholic establishment. It portrays the Vatican increasingly out of step in the wake of two world wars, the Cold War and the massive expansion of the developing world, with its problems of population growth and under-development.

Nicholas Atkin (University of Reading, UK), Frank Tallett (University of Reading, UK)

Nicholas Atkin (1960-2009) was Professor of Modern European History at the University of Reading, UK. Frank Tallett was, until his retirement, Head of the School of Humanities at the University of Reading, UK.
